Strategies for Instagram Algorithm Change in 2016

Strategies for Instagram Algorithm Changes 2016 | DESIGN IS YAY!

Sometime last week, when I woke up and checked on my instagram app like I always do every morning, I noticed something was definitely wrong. The first post I was looking at was the same photo I have liked the night before. Then I thought to myself, has everyone stopped instagramming? Is my wi-fi dead? Is my phone broken? Oh, the horror!

When I scrolled down, I noticed that there were more recent photos below the first few. That was when I realised that #instagramchanges has happened. Most of us, including me, freaked out when we first heard the news about the upcoming change, and everyone posted to encourage their followers to turn on notifications. Hours and days later, we realised how silly and annoying it was to have notifications every time someone post a photo.

Now that the change has actually happened, we should start planning our survival strategy (in the insta world) , and stop wasting our time complaining about it. These are the things that I plan to do to overcome the Instagram algorithm change in 2016.
